Just bought a laptop with Vista Home Premium on it. When playing a DVD in Media Center,
even with the sound all the way up, the volume is pathetically low, barely usable if there is
any ambient noise at all in the room.
Anyone know of any tips or programs to specifically boost the DVD player sound quality?

Much appreciated

Just using the built in speakers right now, would like to avoid having to hook up external speakers.

I have the same problem with almost all my DVD and music programs. For music I have skirted it by using WinAmp with the iZotope add on. I have not found a work around for DVD's yet.

I have noticed that if you pull up the volume slider you can see that the output is for some reason limited to about 1/4 of the actual bar. I am using Realtek High Defenition Audio if that helps.

Also Other than media Center I have tried Media Player and Power DVD, with the same results.
